We had to pause our outdoor Myplace sessions due to lockdown and we have since moved our sessions online. How have you felt about that?
“Quite a lot of us don’t “do” computers, so to be told we have to go virtual on Myplace, especially for those who were previously on outdoor sessions, it was quite a worry losing the weekly, normal routine that keeps you smiling – the one thing, or couple of things, that keep you going, one of which was Myplace.
Knowing that it was going virtual and having to sit in front of a computer screen made me feel even more anxious than dealing with people in real life. But a good point to it is that, on days where I don’t feel like getting up or ready, you can just turn your camera off but can still chat and be connected with other people, still giving you that boost in a week.”
“I was pre-occupied with the virus, but find the sessions really good and really helpful. It gives a structure to the week. It’s something to look forward to and I like seeing everybody.”
